Dr. Chad Kuntz

Chad R Kuntz, DPT, PT, OCS, SCS, CSCS, TPI-1, CISSN: Dr Kuntz is considered Charlotte’s # 1 Sports Doctor and Weight Training Specialist and for good reasons. He has continued to demonstrate his proficiency while helping top-level athletes, excelling golfers and countless middle-aged clients not only return to their prior level of function but in surpassing anything they thought was possible.

After dedicating years of intensive studying, mentorship and observing some of the most accomplished physical therapists to date during his rigorous Orthopedic Residency, he has personally developed a style of treating his patient’s that he refers to as the “Eclectic Kuntz Approach.” This established style of treatment has been largely successful with his patients as it targets the patient’s primary impairment and area of dysfunction, looking to solve the root of the problems and not just the symptoms. This treatment style is performed by Dr Kuntz and no one else!
